For those not in the know, Sony’s Open Devices program has been around for a while now and is aimed at devs who want to create and test software for the Sony smartphones. The company releases AOSP device configurations as well as the required binaries on GitHub, which developers can then download and start working.

The AOSP Android 8.0 Oreo gives them a chance to play around with the latest version of Google’s OS before it officially makes its way to the devices. In addition to the ones above, Sony has confirmed that the Xperia XA1, Xperia XA1 Ultra, and Xperia XA1 Plus will also get upgraded to Android Oreo.
